To tow a 5th wheel large enough to full time in you will need a heavy duty truck/pickup. If you want to do any sight seeing when you get to your destination you will have to deal with driving/parking it. True you will only have one motorized vehicle to maintain.
Driving a Class A you can tow a smaller vehicle to scout around the local area when you get there. Much easier to park/drive in cities and other crowded areas.
A Class A allows you to be able to use all of the facilities (bathroom, kitchen & etc) without having to go outside. If you get stuck in a traffic jam it's nice to have a sandwich or go to the bathroom while everybody else is squirming in their cars. Also with a Class A if you travel with pets you will have room for them to ride where you can keep an eye on them.
With a 5th wheel if you want to use the facilities you have to stop, get out of the tow vehicle and enter the 5th wheel. During inclement weather it can cause some inconveniences.
